It's getting increasingly difficult to find shaders I like when I don't have control over the specific colour/material channel, up to the point where I'm just not using some armours or ornaments simply because they don't take shaders the way I'd like, if at all. For example, I think the design of the new seasonal ornaments for Hunt look fantastic, and I really like the red tone of the robes for the warlock specifically. However, I'm not exactly the biggest fan of the hard pieces of the armor which have the glossy brown with orange weathering. I've tried numerous shaders with red in them, but they all have colours for other material channels that don't suit the theme of the armour I'm trying to achieve.
I know theres probably some technical limitation or hurdle, I'm no game developer so I'm hardly the expert, but a system like Warframe's or even Anthem, where you have set colour and material channels for each armour piece, and you can choose the colour and material, would honestly be amazing. That way, shaders would serve more as a palette, rather than a rigid, one size fits all, colour scheme.

My short bio: Hey, I'm Nick, a university student in Edinburgh, Scotland, who got tired of having to buy all his clothes at Primark and others at the cost of the planet, so I decided to make my own brand: The Carbon Offset Clothing Initiative. Totally sustainable and carbon offset (and really comfy), I'm trying to show the world you don't have to be unethical to make it.

CLOSING UPDATE: Thank you for all of your support, you have really set me on the path to making this something you and I can be proud of. I hope to show those who are sceptical that I really do mean the real deal, but I will show you with actions and not words. Thank you all for your orders, as a uni student who has few prospects in the UK job market at the moment, this has given me so much purpose I didn't know I needed. Goodnight and thank you sincerely.
In my opinion, I feel like something more “adult” and corporate world appropriate while still being fun is missing.
Most of the fashion bloggers I see are 16-21 and still in school, and just wear skimpy sets (cute of course but even at 25 I feel way too old to dress that way).
Or, it’s professional enough but boring as hell. Audrey Coyne and Dearly Bethany have great styling tips, and are pretty much 100% work appropriate, but they are so boring.
I also feel like medium-sized fashion is lacking too. Plus-sized women are finally being embraced thank god, super-skinny women are still celebrated thank god, but mid-sized “average” women still don’t have much of a platform in my opinion. I did see like... ONE girl on tiktok who is midsized.
When I first played Seraphine I was surprised when I got full stacks on level 1, I was also surprised I was spawning ready to go in! I couldn't grasp why that felt so good, but now I know. Going back to Annie feels terrible. Can't contest lvl 1 properly and you basically spawn with cooldowns. My question is why?
I've been trying to get into high quality clothes and see so much stuff I'd be too nervous wearing regularly! Super curious to see how other people do it.
I'm doing my end of the year review of my spending.
That means looking at my budget, and what I ended up buying each month. This spending includes all clothes and shoes. In comparison with 2019, and 2018, this year looks very different.
Here's what I bought:
Total is: $1435.XX for 2020.
For life changes, I switched jobs this year in late March and went from working in person to WFH full time. Also moved to a new climate with a far more casual fashion sense.
I'm fine with what I bought, but none of these seem like long-term wardrobe additions, or like I'll be that interested in them next year. It was difficult for me to find the brand new coat, thick high-quality sweaters, interesting yet casual pants, and the work tote I was seeking this year.
Just felt a lack of high-quality wardrobe additions available and quite a few items remained on my wishlist.
Have you reflected on your shopping purchases in 2020, and have you noticied any interesting trends or anything that surprises you about your buying habits this year?
This is a follow up to this thread which I posted a couple months ago to create a space for the people who are struggling with the fact that they haven't truly been able to express themselves through fashion and makeup during the pandemic (due to stay-at-home orders and the majority of folks working from home).
So, how are you all doing now that we've hit the 8 month mark?
For me, I'm still in that same "meh" mindset. My awesome work wardrobe is still collecting dust, there isn't much of a need for makeup/jewelry, and the only shoes of mine that I've touched since March are my sneakers to walk my dog (there was no need to even unpack my cute sandals and heels this summer, and something tells me it's going to the same for cute boots and booties this winter).
For those who can relate to feeling like a huge part of them is gone, how are you getting by? Do you think one day soon we'll all be enjoying fashion and wearing lipstick again? NYC isn't allowing indoor dining this winter, so unfortunately, so there won't even be many places to go soon.
Oh, and has anyone else packed on the pounds? I probably couldn't even fit into my normal clothes if I tried!
tl;dr: If you're someone who really misses wearing regular clothes and getting ready every day, how are you holding up?
Edit: Yes, I know this could be seen as a frivolous problem to have. But it's important to remember that this isn't necessarily a vanity thing. A lot of us really looked to our routines of picking out a great outfit and heading out the door as beneficial to our mental health.
